A residential area in north Burnaby is getting ready to welcome a superstar as their neighbour and his new home will definitely stand out.
For Michael Bublé and his family, home will soon be on Government Road and Piper Avenue.
The house will be more than 27,000 square feet and will be surrounded by an eight-foot wall, which is double of what city bylaws allow.
But when applying for the exception the architect said the fence was needed for security purposes and that it would be soften by hedges along its exterior faces.
Burnaby city clerk Dennis Back told Global News “several relaxations” were granted but that no special treatment was given.
The home will have a 6,000 square-foot patio which will include a swimming pool and a tennis court.
It will be located across the street from Seaforth Elementary School – where Bublé went to school as a kid.
